Know Your Syllabus First:
Before anything, take a pen and write down the entire syllabus on a piece of paper. While writing the syllabus, you will be able to identify the topics you are good at and topics that you need to work on. Write it down in order of familiarity. As you have a limited time with you, don’t just read everything. You need to be very selective with the topics. Go through the previous year’s question papers and analyze what topics are mostly asked in the paper. After analyzing the paper, make a separate list that includes strong and weak topics. Always start with difficult topics or topics you are weak at. This may look a lot of unnecessary work right now but trust me this can help you fetch a seat in RBI Grade B Legal 2021 exam.
Work on your weak areas
After identifying your strong and weak areas, write it in an order based on its weightage. Device a preparation strategy accordingly. You can take help from books and Study materials available online. You can also take assistance from ixamBee which has covered each topic in a very crisp and precise way.
Revision is the Key
No matter how much syllabus you have covered, as long as you are not revising it regularly, all your hard work is going in vain. The key to improvise and perform well in the exam is a regular revision of what you have studied. There are various ways to revise effectively and those are
- Make self-made notes for revision (Don’t read from others notes as this will take more time than usual and also affect your efficiency of retaining the topic)
- Highlight important words as this will cancel out a lot of unnecessary words. Doing this will make your revision effective.
- Include a Flow chart while making notes as this helps in saving a lot of time. Try Parkinson’s Law (Set your own deadline). Limit your time interval to a particular duration, this, in turn, increases your productivity
Analyze previous years question papers
Solving previous year’s papers is the best way to understand the difficulty level as well as the trend of the exam. It will not only help in understanding the difficulty level but also let you know the exam pattern, topic-wise distribution of questions, section-wise weightage, marking scheme, and much more. It will boost your confidence and enhance your problem-solving skills. There are various memory-based papers available online. You can take help of any of them.
